Almost 2 weeks ago now we celebrated as Becca and Andrew committed all the love in their hearts to one another for the long haul. Watching the way they looked at each other all day was priceless. You could tell it was just surreal to them that after a long season of engagement they were finally here. And it was about so much more than celebrating a long-awaited wedding...

A little over a week ago we celebrated the second wedding of our season, and wow, was it a lovely day. I’ve been really excited to share it with you all! Joe&Katie are truly fantastic people. It was amazing to us to watch how well they love and treat the people around them. And it was obvious by the almost tangible joy surrounding their whole day that their...

The weekend before last we celebrated wedding number one of 2015 with our lovely new friends Brock&Alina. And it was an absolutely beautiful brunch wedding held at the St. Cecilia Music Center in downtown GR. I mean… does it get better than two people in love celebrating with all their loved ones AND bacon? I submit that it does not.

Their wedding day was so relaxed and full of joy and anticipation. We started the day in the space they call home together now – where they saw each other for the first time that day. Right there in their kitchen. (I mean… all the greatest things happen in the kitchen, am I right??) We hung out there for a while and they laughed and cuddled in together as...

...speaking of things I’m grateful for – THIS wedding day. Oh my goodness. We actually smiled and laughed all day. I actually remember several points throughout the day where Drew and I turned to look at each other at the same exact time because we were so floored by all the love and joy going on. Andy&Charlie are CRAZY about each other. It’s...

The sweetness of recounting Bryan&Courtney’s day here is a gift. He truly treats her like a princess, and she looks at him with an ever present sparkle in her eye… aka they’ve got a beautiful future ahead of them, and it was such an honor to help tell this part of their story! And as stunning at the Detroit Yacht Club is, and as beautiful of a day...

I remember clearly getting Jess’ email back sharing a bit of why she and Tom are such a great pair that they want to commit to forever. I immediately read it out loud to Drew I loved it so much. Long story short… they’re just the best of friends. From their shared love of hunting to the fact that Jess just knows Tom has every skill and then some to...

To be honest, I sit over here at a bit of a loss for words in regards to what to say about this particular wedding. So, I think to not overdo it, and because I’m about to blog way too many photos that will tell the story better than me anyway, I will keep my words brief today. (Well, ya know, brief for me. Whatever.)

These two people are incredibly...

Today is the wonderful day I get to share our second wedding adventure to the beautiful campuses of Notre Dame and St. Mary’s! This time, to celebrate the marriage of our new friends RJ&Arielle. And boy… are they fantastic. I think this wedding was the fastest wedding booking ever. Arielle and I had a phone conversation that lasted maaaaaybe all of 10...

Earlier this month we had the absolute honor of photographing our lovely new friends Larry&Lauren’s wedding, and boy… did we leave with a full heart! Drew actually grew up going to church with Lauren when they were very wee ones. (And I’ve seen photos… YEESH were they cute.) Through the means of facebook, Lauren happened to notice that Drew...

They put the people around them at ease. Individually, and even more so when they’re together. They listen to your every word and care about each one. They will do anything to help you at any time that is humanly possible. They will make you laugh, and laugh when you’re funny as well. :) They have phenomenal taste in, oh, everything in life. They have, share...

The first moment I pointed my camera at these two for our engagement session (a weirdly cold May day – thanks, Michigan ;)), I was just floored by their love and admiration for each other. The images below will speak more than my words could ever could about this fact, so I’ll just let you see for yourself. It’s beautiful. And I basically cried a few...
